Capital Economics is one of the few voices expressing caution lately about emerging market equities, which are one of the most popular spots among strategists for 2017. Capital Economics' latest source of concern: Early signs emerging markets trade is softening. In a note Thursday, Capital Economics noted that early data for December from countries like China, Brazil, Korea, Chile, Vietnam and Taiwan suggested export growth in emerging markets softened in the final month of 2017.
Investors know there are riches awaiting those who jump on hot trends like artificial intelligence, virtual reality, or blockchain at the right time, in the right way. But that’s easier said than done. HSBC thematic strategist Davey Jose is looking at such disruptive technologies based on where they are in their cycle and what that means for investors, using what HSBC calls a “disruption cycle indicator.” Jose...
Mention global health, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is likely to come up—and with good reason, given the heft and success of its philanthropic work. But there are returns to be had in global health, as Bill Gates told my colleague Andrew Bary last week. Money managers see long-term opportunities in health care, as rising incomes and an aging population in countries like China set the stage for increased spending. We...
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
